After we asked for evidence of any alleged damages, we never received a reply.”
He added, “This whole claim is ludicrous, but we remain committed to cooperating with authorities, as we have done throughout.”
Mr. Manson denied Ms. Wood’s claims broadly in an Instagram put up: “Obviously, my art and my life have long been magnets for controversy, but these recent claims about me are horrible distortions of reality,” he wrote. “My intimate relationships have always been entirely consensual with like-minded partners. Regardless of how — and why — others are now choosing to misrepresent the past, that is the truth.”
